Travellers and activities
Croatia oozes several flavours from its neighbouring countries in their local cuisine. You need to try the most delicious and mouthwatering dishes that are on the menu. Black rice or dirty macaroni are two well known specialties. Peka or “Lamb under the bell” is a very popular meal slow-cooked in an old-fashioned way in the “konobas”, the outdoor kitchens. The result is an extremely tender meat and perfect crispy potatoes. Try some traditional puddings to complete your meal. Rozata and Stone Cake are a great bet! Can’t you wait to indulge your palate?Dubrovnik for explorers
Dubrovnik has much more to offer outside the city walls. The beautiful surroundings and the sea offer great days out to explore other places nearby. One of them is stunning Lokrum. This beautiful island is just 600 metres from the city and can be accessed by ferry. You can visit the ruins of the Benedictine Monastery and the Botanical Garden. In the summer, you can snorkel, swim and play some football or volleyball beach at some little pitches along the coast. You will find a couple of little restaurants to grab a bite or a refreshing ice cream for those hot summer days! Explore the island at your own pace!
Did you know the city is surrounded by 2 km of ancient walls, which, by the way, have never been breached?
Top 5 travel tips in Dubrovnik
Dubrovnik is considered as one of the most well preserved medieval cities. The old town is enclosed by sturdy stone walls that used to protect the city between the 11th and 17th centuries. The broad limestone chanel, Placa, is the main street of the old city lined with buildings sharing the same floor plan because of an old decree after a big fire in the 17th century. Admire the cathedral and wander around the alleyways and discover cute little shops, churches, monasteries, sunlit squares and the old port with lots of restaurants where to enjoy the delicious Croatian recipes. There are a few markets and bazaars and in the summer you can enjoy the Summer Festival with outdoor concerts, ballet and opera shows.2. Dubrovnik beaches
The Adriatic Sea does not feature many sandy beaches, just a few ones. The aquamarine colour of the water is what really attracts your attention, with its white and grey pebbles laid on the sea bed. If you want to unwind by the Adriatic Sea, head to Lapad beach, one of the most touristic ones. A bit further around this bay you can enter the water from the rocks.3. Historic city walls
Dubrovnik is well known by the surrounding walls of the Old Town. They are 1940 metres long with 6 fortresses. It is a must-do and a great experience to walk the Walls of Dubrovnik. To know about its history get your guided tour and learn about the Renaissance, Gothic and Baroque architecture styles. From the top you will get supreme views of Dubrovnik backed with the Adriatic. Fans of Game of Thrones can also have the tour around the Walls. You will feel like in a medieval film and you can be in the set where King's Landing was standing.4. Admire the clock tower
A very well known landmark is the clock tower on Luza Square. This tower is 31 metres high and it has two bronze figures “Baro” and “Maro”, known as the Green Men, either side of the bell that chimes every day at noon. In the middle of the tower, two small squares in blue, show the time in a peculiar way - Roman numerals on the left and numbers on the right.5. Get a great view from the top
The Cable car is a great attraction to get a different point of view of the city. Experience the most amazing panoramic views. From the top, you will be able to see the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic, the Old City and up to 37 miles on a clear day. Have a snack, a drink or a meal in the restaurant overlooking Dubrovnik. Then, get yourself a little souvenir to take back home. A curiosity of its cable car upper base is the two smart benches powered by solar energy that provide phone charging. The Steora benches have been invented and produced in Croatia. Go green!
